Hotel At Bus Station In SantiagoMy wife and I will be arriving in Santiago by bus - from Mendoza, Argentina. Then, the next day we'll need to get on a bus for Valparaiso. Any reccomendations as to where we can spend one night - close to the bus station?? Am I correct in assuming that the bus from Mendoza and the bus to Valparaiso arrive and depart from the same bus terminal??

1Not necessarily. It depends what bus you are getting from Mendoza. But the two main bus stations are are in adjoining blocks, Terminal Alameda for Pullman and Turbus and Terminal Santiago for other companies. Turbus actually has a hotel above the station which isn't bad and Ibis has opened a hotel right next to the other station. So either would do.
It isn't a great neighbourhood but the Universidad de Santiago metro station, line 1, is right there. You could stay anywhere on line 1 if you wanted. You just have to avoid rush hour. The buses leave every 15 minutes or so from either station.

6Transvip just does transfers from the airport to any address of your choosing. I think you mean the Turbus terminal, Terminal Alameda. Across the side street is Terminal Santiago, with other companies which do frequent buses to Valpo. If you are getting any bus except Turbus from Mendoza (Andesmar, Cata), that is the terminal where you are likely to end the trip. Or, as mentioned, just get a Mendoza to Valparaiso bus and bypass Santiago.
